The magazines we see on the stands
Make me want to turn the covers to the back
So only the obnoxious ads show.
What will my son think is beautiful
Medical oddities, green screen folk
Young girls hawking clothes for middle aged women?
I would like to make a magazine
Full of pictures of real beautiful people
Telling their stories.
The stories our children listen to
Hanging around doorways
When they don’t think we’re noticing.
I think all of us talk about doing this. Something tarted up to look like the other glossies.
